Thankful for this map

For an idea of what the early 17th Century was like, I present this map.
The captain with the original name, John Smith, made this famous 1616 map of New England, which shows what Smith found in the New World, things like a sea monster, lines in the ocean, a floating coat of arms, beasts larger than mountains and other 17th Century staples, like the unicorn on top right.
